Some say love is a burning thing
That it makes a fiery ring

Oh but I know love as a fading thing
Just as fickle as a feather in a stream

See, honey, I saw love. You see, it came to me
It put its face up to my face so I could see

Yeah then I saw love disfigure me
Into something I am not recognizing

Flood skull full e1360848579500 my heart is gold.

See, the cage, it called. I said, “Come on in”
I will not open myself up this way again

Nor lay my face to the soil, nor my teeth to the sand
I will not lay like this for days now upon end

You will not see me fall, nor see me struggle to stand
To be acknowledge by some touch from his gnarled hands

You see, the cage, it called. I said, “Come on in”
I will not open myself up this way again

You see, the moon is bright in that treetop night
I see the shadows that we cast in the cold, clean light

My feet are gold. My heart is white
And we race out on the desert plains all night

See, honey, I am not some broken thing
I do not lay here in the dark waiting for thee

No my heart is gold. My feet are light
And I am racing out on the desert plains all night

So some say love is a burning thing
That it makes a fiery ring

Oh but I know love as a caging thing
Just a killer come to call from some awful dream

O and all you folks, you come to see
You just stand there in the glass looking at me

But my heart is wild. And my bones are steam
And I could kill you with my bare hands if I was free

 my heart is gold.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
